My 5 year old daughter had her first tee ball game tonight and was tagged out twice by the other team's COACH. The team wasn't short players, he wasn't helping the kids play, he was essentially playing first base while the kid who was supposed to be covering first base was being a typical 5 year old and kind of wandering off or playing in the dirt.
I know for sure that our coaches weren't doing that. They were trying to keep the kids who were especially prone to screwing around and playing in the dirt (my child included! LOL) on track and paying attention, but weren't playing like a player.
I didn't want to make a fuss in front of my daughter, because she was having a lot of fun and didn't realize that it was unfair. Actually I didn't make a fuss at all, but I was shocked.
So my questions are has anything like this ever happened to you? And if so, what did you do about it? Should I even bring it up since I think it was the only game we will even have with this team? What would you do?

i would say something technically she was not out because he was the coach not the player.
